Kickstarter helped raise nearly $20 million for musicians last year.
“Music was the second most-funded category behind Film & Video last year, according to stats just shared by Kickstarter. In total, music projects rallied $19,801,685 (and 21 cents), a healthy chunk of the nearly $100 million in pledges in 2011. That is more than triple the volume from 2010, though we don’t have a music-specific breakdown from last year. ” (Digital Music News)
